Microsoft announced on Monday via the Xbox Wire that the ability to upload game clips directly to YouTube will be coming to the Xbox One this week. This is the second major upgrade since the console’s launch for gamers who want to share their recordings with others, the first being the addition of HD streaming and archiving on the Twitch app last month.
Now Xbox One owners will be able to upload their personal recordings directly to YouTube, rather than having to go through SkyDrive as an intermediary. In case you’re keeping score, the PlayStation 4 still doesn’t have Twitch archiving or direct YouTube upload, although Sony has gone on record to assure streamers that a Twitch update is on the way.
When the update rolls out on Tuesday, you’ll be able to “use Game DVR to capture epic gaming moments, edit them in Upload Studio, and, with the simple click of a button inside the YouTube app (look for My Uploads), share them instantly to your YouTube channel.”
